So, I’m in the process of converting A1 Slave Pits of the Undercity to 4e rules for the meetup group I’ve been playing with lately. The group has been a lot of fun, and through it I’ve been introduced to a lot of classic D&D experiences that I missed out on when we were playing mostly homebrew stuff in high school and college. Back in high school, I had never heard of the Tomb of Horrors, the Temple of Elemental evil, or Castle Greyhawk. I never met Elminster in the streets of Waterdeep or fought alongside Sturm Brightblade. I didn’t read any of the novels and I didn't watch the cartoon show. We were having a blast with our own creations, and occasionally dabbled in the netbooks of traps or riddles, but nothing in our experiences tied us into the larger D&D world. Now I feel like I’m getting schooled in all of these classic mods, and I’m really loving it. Better late than never.
